Cambodian indigenous group files lawsuit against French company over seized land

Recommended Posts

Over 800 families suffered damages by a Socfin-KCD plantation, which is funded by Bolloré. The plaintiffs lost hope of obtaining justice in Cambodia and so took their case to France.


Phnom Penh (AsiaNews/Agencies) – The French Embassy in Phnom Penh has denied visas to representatives of six Bunong tribal villages in the eastern province of Mondulkiri, who want to take legal action in France against the multinational Bolloré.


Eleven people had applied for a visa, including a lawyer, a translator and nine representatives of the indigenous group.
